DING DING DING… new idea!…. new idea!……..drum roll pleaseeeeeeee……… announcing the……the Lifelong MBA!!! woohooOooOoOoo
The basic concept is that once we graduate school, we’re ALL pursuing our Lifelong MBA’s. Our Lifelong MBA is the degree we give ourselves, for the rest of our life. Nobody decides what course we take. We choose what courses we want to take whether it’s art, history, math and no matter what we do, there is some business involved. We all need to sell ourselves to future employers, build relationships and earn a living. In a way, we all run the business of ‘ourselves.’ We re-invest capital in our own knowledge, relationships and whatever we choose. We need a Lifelong MBA.
But unlike school, where we sit in class, absorb and re-gurgitate information. The Lifelong MBA is more like 7th grade science. We’re experimenting, trying things and learning. We’re learning through application.
But when do we graduate from our Lifelong MBA? We don’t. We graduate when we die.
My target audience for now, will be young adults. I like writing in a wacky, vulgar tone and that’s definitely more receptive with young people.
This’ll also give me an excuse to learn new skills, do interesting things and re-teach them out to an audience. I also need to keep learning and trying things to keep creating compelling content. This gives me an excuse to try out ideas I’ve stated in my previous posts as ‘learning experiments.’
I’m gonna go for a Wait But Why/ 4-Hour blog style long-form content, since I actually want my content to teach and be informative. This means I won’t be posting frequently on the site, unlike here, where I’m posting almost everyday.
Win-win situation. Even if nobody reads the site, I win since I’ll still be learning things for myself.
I have my domain name purchased, set-up but I’m not going to launch yet. But stay tuned.
